I’ve had the RawArt CCwings Variety Pack for about a year now. I’ve used it before without any problems but now I’m about to tear up my computer with the problems I’m having. Specifically, the Egyptian wing style, which I have never used until now. I load the materials in Poser, but only the back shows the pattern. The front is transparent and when I manually add the textures to the front, it gets all funky. Does anyone know what I’m doing wrong? Or has anyone had this problem before? I am so frustrated. I can load ANY other texture such as a Poser gold texture or dress pattern, or anything, and it shows up, but when I load the Egyptian or bat materials, everything is transparent except the back of the wings. it looks to me like there are missing files. I reset my downloads thinking I might have missed something or there might have been an update, but no such luck.

I’m asking here since I wasn’t for sure if I could actually submit a help ticket for something which seems a little silly. But blast it, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

Thanks for any help provided.

Have you tried setting Normals Forward in the Material Room? It may be that that set is emant to work as a single-sided texture, I suppose.

When i load the wings in Poser 9, one side is indeed transparent in the preview window. In the final render everything does show up fine.
The wings seem to be a plane with no thickness, my guess is the poser preview renderer can only texture one side of a plane ?

Thank you both for your help. It’s still not showing up in the final render. I had Normals Forward checked already but unchecking it and checking the box again didn’t do anything. I think I’m going to just give up. It’s too blasted frustrating to keep going on.

Thanks again, both of you.
